Now she finds herself in an almost unrecognizable new world, how does she fit into it? Can she be the superhero people want her to be? ” McKelvie is excited to explore these issues and elaborate on Carter’s world, praising Crest’s art for bringing energy to Carter and the supporting cast and for having “stellar” action scenes.
